Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies- Christmas Special

Hello my lovely readers!

Christmas is only a couple of days away! So I though of sharing a recipe for this festive season.

Nothing beats a chocolate chip cookie straight out of the oven and to give it that Christmas-ey twist I added red, green and yellow Cadbury gems to it! You can add m&m’s too, same thing.

I’m adding a tutorial with pictures for extra clarity! It’s really easy, I say give it a try!
P.s. These cookies are chewy and not crunchy! If you like cookies that are something between a cake and a biscuit then these ones are for you! Honestly, I’ve tried many recipes even took cookie baking classes but nothing worked for me like these! I think I’ve found ‘my CCC recipe’. All thanks to Sally from Sally’s baking addiction for the recipe. Her addiction is really inspiring!

Ingredients:

This recipe yields about a dozen cookies. You could double it for 2 dozens. I like making stuff in smaller batches, it’s easy and when I’m trying something new I have less things to trash just in case I stuff up ;)

  • 85 gms butter (or 5-6 tbsp)
  • 1 tbsp white powdered sugar
  • 75 gms brown sugar (or 5 tbsp)
  • Half an egg (you can beat the egg and divide it into half) or you can use 2 tbsp vegetable oil.
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 175 gms flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda (you can use 1/2 tsp baking powder instead)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cornflour or cornstarch
  • 50 gms chocolate chips
  • 60 gms Cadbury gems or m&m’s (red, green and yellow color, or you could cheat like me and use a few pink ones too :p)
  • Baking tray for baking or a muffin tray works fine too (I used it)
  • Butter for greasing
  • Butter paper for lining the baking sheet (I used muffin cups in my muffin tray)

Process:

Step 1: Whisk the butter until light and fluffy.
Step 2: Add in the sugar and whisk until completely mixed.
Step 3: Mix in half an egg and vanilla essence and whisk until a fluffy mixture has formed.
Step 4: In a separate bowl, sieve the flour, baking soda, salt and cornflour.
Step 5: Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture little by little until it forms a dough.
Step 6: Add in the gems and chocolate chips, and mix so that they are evenly distributed.
Step 7: Wrap this dough in foil paper and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour (max 2 hours)
Step 8: Take out the dough and you’ll see crumbs falling. Get it all together, you’ll have a hard, smooth cookie dough.
Step 9: Take about 1 tbsp of cookie dough, form it into a ball and flatten it a little. Don’t worry about it being perfect, imperfections are what make homemade cookies beautiful. Bake in the oven for 6 minutes at 160 degree Celsius and then for 13 minutes at 180 degree Celsius.
P.s. Every oven is different, I’d say just bake until you see little cracks on top of the cookies and golden colour on the edges. My oven is very old, so it took that long. The original recipe calls for 8-9 minutes baking at 180 degree Celsius.

Perfectly chewy centre- like promised!
